- 5+ in stock
Perfectly crystallising the agonising tensions and niggling backchat of family Christmases and seamlessly blending some difficult subject matter with writing that is sharp, moving and very funny, Juno Dawson’s latest novel is a bittersweet taste of Christmas that makes for unmissable seasonal reading.
When three very different siblings, Fern, Rowan and Willow, go home for a Christmas reunion at their family home in Edinburgh, it's not long before some very big secrets threaten their cosy holiday ...
The McAllister house on Arboretum Road has seen 120 Christmases since its completion. This year, Fern is bringing her gorgeous boyfriend home and she wants everything to be perfect. But her twin brother Rowan would rather go on the pull than pull crackers with the family. And their younger sister Willow is terrified of Christmas Day.
With four sleeps till Christmas,
Three secretive siblings,
Two hot houseguests,
And one juicy secret ...
This Christmas, there will be some big surprises under the tree.
Sometimes at Christmas, you don't get what you want, you get what you need...
Sweet and sour, funny and moving, and very, very Christmassy - the perfect book to curl up with this holiday.

'A gripping, personal tale of fame and misfortune' - BBC Radio 2
'I loved the contrast of cosy Christmas spirit and gorgeous romance with the acerbic humour and grit you'd expect from a Juno Dawson novel' * - The Bookseller
'Dawson has a gift for writing believable teenagers characters, and Meat Market is a powerful counterweight to light-hearted literature that still portrays modelling as the stuff of dreams' - The Guardian
'Juno Dawson slashes through the glamour of the fashion industry ... combining blockbuster appeal with piercing commentary on modelling, body image and consent' - The Observer
'Well-researched and hard-hitting, the novel doesn't skimp on the glamour but neither does it skirt the darker side of fashion' - Financial Times
'An unflinching expose of the darker side of fashion' - i newspaper
'Having worked as a journalist on the fringes of the fashion industry, Dawson started to realise there were problems - namely, models were often very young, nameless and simply bodies who were not treated well by those around them. Meat Market is a gripping page-turner, an expose of the dark and often seedy side of the industry, addressing timely themes around #MeToo and #TimesUp.' - The Independent
